Welcome to my corner of North Georgia. I document my adventures and outdoor activities in hopes of inspiring others to make the most of each day. It is my goal to make hiking accessible and non-intimidating, while promoting responsible enjoyment of the environment. No trail is too short!

The list

I first came upon the idea of hiking 31 mountains when I was on the Georgia Appalachian Trail Club website and they described a new challenge they are launching- the GA4000, in which participants hike 31 "qualifying" peaks over 4000 feet in Georgia. So no, this was not my idea, but I found it very fitting to stumble upon it two weeks before my 31st birthday. There are limited details on the GATC website and it seems the program is planned to launch in 2016. The GATC has not listed the qualifying peaks yet, but here are a list of the mountains in Georgia over 4000 feet. Obviously there are more than 31, so I'm not sure which ones will not qualify. I have already visited Brasstown Bald and Blood Mountain several years ago and may have hiked others without paying attention to the names but am looking forward to starting the challenge fresh.
